"Scriabin's strange genius played as if in the first white heat of inspiration"
(Gramophone Editor's Choice July 2006)

"Scriabin's strange genius played as if in the first white heat of inspiration. There is something, much, that is wondrous about Alexander Melnikov, and it's all in evidence here. The fabulously fluid, mercurial virtuosity, the sudden flashes of fire or melting into solace. Everything, all his effects, every burst of inspiration, sounds all of a piece. You can't help but admire an interpretation that sounds so natural, so deeply felt. It will also, I suspect, reveal new treasures on each revisit."
(Gramophone Editor's Choice July 2006)
